The girl travelling between worlds owes a lot to Lewis, Pullman, and Gaiman.
The Longest Journey (which is what AlejandroSV was talking about) came out a few years before Coraline, which is Gaiman's only major work dealing with the girl traveling between worlds theme.

Before you ask, "Nemel Chelovek" is from a Russian fairy tale about a dragon, his uncle, a princess, and a heroic pageboy. Nemel is the uncle in question.
